  • Its hard not to be annoyed when great local chefs decamp to other locales. So were ecstatic that when Carolyn Johnson left Rialto, she stayed within our sphere.
  • The bartender is amazing- gives great advice on every dish on the menu. He will also make you an excellent drink that's NOT on the menu if asked. But you have to get there at 5:25 to get a seat!!! :)
  • Fennel and white bean soup is phenomenal!!
  • Lamb turnovers are Amazing.
  • Try everything, at least once. Cocktails included. A relaxed but sophisticated ambience; excellent food, and Steve knows his cocktails and wine!
  • p.s. What the sam Adams is Thoreau Sauce anyway? Ewww
  • Must have the Pot de Creme! I think its the stone ground Taza chocolate that makes it so good.
  • Amazing food, ambience and service. Owners put so much heart into this place. Get the chicken!
  • The Bar menu proves "small bites" that aren't on the regular menu. Yummy.
  • Have Steve make you a cocktail. His work is delicious.
  • Get the daiquiri from Steve the Bartender. It's amazing!!
  • Love the food! I've never had anything I didn't like.
  • Fantastic all around!
  • Chef Carolyn Johnson offers dishes such as foie gras torchon with Concord grapes and a corn madeleine and scallops with Macomber turnips, mushrooms, and beurre rouge are inventive without being showy.
  • Order anything. You can't go wrong. SO good.
  • Loved the beef 2 ways! Highly recommend it!
  • Be sure to grab a ringside seat at the kitchen and enjoy a bowl of the corn soup before summers end. Amazing!
  • Love the Pimms cup!
  • Menu changes with the seasons of the ingredients, not just the weather. Must come back often to eat the best of what local farms are offering!
  • Great cocktails, food and exceptionally fast and friendly service!
